Target learning: Learn and discover all the tools that they will be using during the school year and what the tools does or measures
Start the school year out with introducing all the tools that the students will be using during all the labs you will be doing for the school year.
This lab has 6 stations for the students to move around the room and practicing using the droppers, rulers, meter sticks, graduated cylinders, meter sticks, and pan balance
I also included a practice sheet for the students to read from the balance scale and graduated cylinder
Students are so excited to get their hands on all the tools at the beginning of the school year. This will hope all the other labs go smoother because the students will already know how to use the tool.
The lab and practice page is a foldable lab sheet that can be glued into their science spiral or science journal. Instructions on printing the pages is included

· Dropper/ pipet for each person
